DICK CLARK,THE FAMED TV.-HOST DIED IN LA,USA.!

THE FAMED TV.-HOST AND AN ENTERTAINMENT-ICON, DICK CLARK IS DEAD!

HE WAS 82.HE DIED OF A MASSIVE HEART-STROKE.HE BECAME SYNONYMOUS WITH HIS 1972-INITIATIVE CALLED ‘NEW YEAR ROCKIN’ EVE’ THAT HE KEPT PASSIONATELY TILL 2003 AND THEN AGAIN FROM 2005 TO 2OO6 WHEN HE HANDED OVER THIS MENTLE TO RYAN SEACREST!
HE HAD HIS FIRST STROKE IN 2004 AND HE WAS ALSO A TYPE-II DIABETIC AS HE ONCE REVEALED TO LARRY KING!

DUE TO HIS RAW PASSION AND NEVER DYING ENTHUSIASM,HE WAS NICKNAMED AS ‘AMERICA’S OLDEST TEENAGER’!
HE STARTED TAKING INTEREST IN SHOWBIZ EARLIER IN HIS SCHOOLDAYS AND HAD BEEN CLOSELY ASSOCIATED WITH HALF A DOZEN RADIO/TV STATIONS SINCE THEN!
HE HAD SORT OF REVOLUTIONIZED THE POPULARITY OR THE WAY WE HEAR POP-MUSIC BY INTRODUCING TEENS WHO USED TO DANCE ON THE TUNES OF HIT NUMBERS N LATEST ALBUM OF A YEAR- -HE APPROPRIATELY NAMED IT ‘AMERICAN BANDSTAND’. .!
HE ALSO STARTED THE ONCE POPULAR GAMESHOW:-PYRAMID.

DICK CLARK WAS THE FASTEST FOLLOWER IN BUSINESS.HE WAS AN INSPIRING ENTREPRENEUR OF MODERN TIMES.HIS AMERICAN-BANDSTAND BECAME A HUGE SENSATION SOON AFTER ITS INCEPTION IN 1972 AND HE TARGETED THE YOUNGER AUDIENCE,NORMALLY THE SCHOOL-GOERS WHO USED TO GLUE TO THEIR TV.-SETS IN THEIR HOMES EVERY WEEKDAY SOON AFTER COMING FROM SCHOOL.HE COULD WELL BE CREDITED WITH BRINGING A LEGION OF FUTURE-ICONS LIKE JACKIE WILSON,JIMMY MORRISON,JOHNNY CASH N A FEW MORE.

HE HAD HIS LOWS N FAILURES TOO!HE NARROWLY MANAGED TO ESCAPE FROM ‘POYAL-SCANDAL’.HIS MOVIES WERE FLOPS.ONE SUCH MOVIE WAS ‘PSYCHE-OUT’ STARRING JACK NICHOLSON N BASED UPON ‘HIPPIE-CULTURE’ PREVALENT PROMINENTLY IN CALIFORNIA.IT WAS A BIG FLOP.HIS TV.-SERIALS MET WITH THE SAME FATE.’THE WEREWOLVES OF WOODSTOCK’ WAS ONE SUCH.
DICK CLARK WAS THE MAN WHO SENSED THE UNDERLYING IMPORTANCE N FUTURE OF THE THEN NOT-SO-LIKED MUSIC-GENRE OF ‘ROCK n ROLL’.HE HAD A GREAT GRASP ON THE ‘PULSES’ OF THE AUDIENCE N HE ALWAYS GOT THAT RIGHT N SUCCESSFULLY UTILIZED.
HE MARRIED THRICE N HAD CHILDREN FROM HIS FIRST TWO WIVES.HE IS SURVIVED BY HIS THIRD WIFE N CHILDREN.

HE WAS HAVING AN OUTPATIENT PROCEDURE AT ST.JOHN’S LA N DIED THE NEXT DAY MORNING.
HIS DEATH IS A MASSIVE LOSS TO THE WORLD OF ENTERTAINMENT!
